If you own one of the 11063 case reference vintage Heuer Autavia or Heuer Skipper models, you know it’s a real challenge to find metal bands for these 21mm straight-lug watches. Today we are announcing a vintage Beads of Rice band modified version with 21mm straight ends. This is a new variation of the popular modified 1163 case 20mm BoR bands we have been selling here for some time now. The look of this new combination for your 11063 is ideal.
CUSTOMER QUOTE: "It looks perfect. Young guy at the watch shop really liked the finished product. He didn't realize that "Heuer" existed before "Tag Heuer," so apparently he has never seen Steve McQueen's "Le Mans!"
The Beads of Rice band is a 4x3 row New Old Stock 1960s/70s vintage watch bracelet with the same overall look as the GF bands that went on popular 1970s Heuer models. The band has 4 end beads that go into the 21mm straight-end pieces. The links flare out gradually to 19.8mm at the ends, so the transition to the end pieces is perfect. Good length is 6 3/8 inches (16cm) fully extended and sizes down to 5 5/8 inches (14cm) with the adjustments in the clasp. Signed on the back of the clasp "100% Stainless Steel Hadley Hong Kong.” You can remove links to make it shorter. Clasp is 17.4mm wide. Links are 2.8mm thick. Band weighs 33 grams. The band has the more narrow beads than the standard 3x2 row pattern BoRs that are more commonly seen.
These BoR 11063 case bands will ship about 2 weeks after you order and make pre-payment, until our initial order backlog is cleared.
U.S. Priority shipping for $9.99. International shipping $65 for EMS Express (arrives in 5-7 days) or $115 for FedEx.
